IE.au3 errors?

Recommended Posts


Hello everyone,

I have been experiencing a strange error that repros on only one of my laptops, on the other it works fine.

Now obviously its a config error somewhere.... but I have been batteling this for 4 days now and cant figure out what else to do.

Help please.

Error in console:

C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\Include\IE.au3 (3324) : ==> The requested action with this object has failed.:

$oTemp = $o_object.document.body

$oTemp = $o_object.document^ ERROR

The scenario: I never get to -> MsgBox(64, "Debug", "3. Searchtext content - " & $searchText)

without that error

Code snippit:

$oIE = _IECreate($url1)

$oFrames = _IEFrameGetCollection($oIE)

$iNumFrames = @extended

For $i = 0 To ($iNumFrames - 1)

$oFrame = _IEFrameGetCollection($oIE, $i)

MsgBox(64, "Debug", "2. Frame content - [" & $oFrame & "]")

$searchText = _IEPropertyGet($oFrame, "innertext")

MsgBox(64, "Debug", "3. Searchtext content - " & $searchText)


What have I done to try to resolve the problem?

I removed all extra programs, even office since the laptop is dedicated to the automation, cleaned the system with CCleaner.

Can't explain why it would work on one system and not another if you are going to the same pages. It looks to me like a cross-domain frame scripting error.

Put _IEErrorHandlerRegister() in your code and watch the console for an Access Denied error. If you see it, you'll need to open the frame you want in a new window using it's scr url.

SciTe Debug mode - it's magic: #AutoIt3Wrapper_run_debug_mode=Y Doesn't work needs to be ripped out of the troubleshooting lexicon. It means that what you tried did not produce the results you expected. It begs the questions 1) what did you try?, 2) what did you expect? and 3) what happened instead?
